Quilting Kit For Beginners Buyers Guide By Karen Tripp, The Owner of The Quilt Kit Co

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is how can we help a customer select a quilt kit. Below are 3 tips I've complied to assist you in making your decision.

  • It is important to know what size of quilt you want to make (including the number of quilt blocks). The most popular sizes are twin and full/queen sizes. The size of the quilt can make the difference between a weekend project or a project that might take weeks! The second question you might want to ask yourself is what is the occasion for the quilt? If you are wanting to make a quilt for a special holiday or event, you will want to find a kit that has festive colors or prints. On the other hand, if you want to make a quilt for every day use, you will likely want to choose a more muted color palette.The third question is how much time do I have to dedicate to this project? If you are looking for a quick project, you might want to consider a kit that has larger pieces or fewer pieces. A kit with lots of small pieces might be better suited for someone who wants a longer term project.
  • It's all about color! Consider the colors you would like in your quilt top as well as the feel or mood you want to convey. Would you like your quilt to be playful or more subdued? Do you want the quilting to be the star of the show or more of a background player? There are many beautiful hand-dyed fabrics that can really make a statement. On the other hand, if you're looking for a more low-key look, consider using solid fabrics. Texture is also an important consideration when selecting fabrics for your quilt top. Do you want your quilt to have a lot of dimension and interest? Then consider using some fun novelty prints or mixing in some corduroy or velveteen fabrics. If you're looking for a more traditional look, then sticking with cotton fabrics might be the way to go.
